HI Simon, If your Moonlite CHL has the 68 mm threads for the eyepiece adapters, Moonlite makes a Tak adapter. I use one on my setup and it works quite well. If not, you are probably stuck with the high dollar Tak 2" adapter that slips into the focuser barrel. BobT

PreciseParts and a screwed on connection is what you are going to want.

I had never looked at the actual tak adapter and when I had a look at it I can see its screwed into the adapter 

 

perfect!
